My {Filofax} Week 15

Paper Lovestory's My Week

I really enjoyed the weather this past week. Overall it was a great week, and I’m happy to say I can feel the chaos subsiding a bit.

Here’s my week:


Monday started off a bit rocky. My alarm went off. I hopped in the shower as usual, immediately realized I didn’t submit my discussion post the night before, and had to accept that I actually forgot to submit an assignment for the first time in YEARS. I continued getting ready as usual, checked my email quickly from my phone and glanced at the time – 6:20 a.m. – I was up an hour early because my clock set itself forward for the old Daylight Savings Time. I momentarily had an “Are you kidding me?!” moment, but decided to not let it get me down. I hadn’t written my “My Week” post for the previous week so I had a chance to do that. I also, ironically, forgot to set my alarm early the night before to give me time to stop at our Parking Services office at the far end of campus to pick up my new GATED parking pass. It’s utterly fantastic to be able to park in a garage right behind my building. Getting to work early meant I also had time to stop at the Starbucks on campus – my treat for seeing the positives in being woken up early rather than being frustrated. Over all it was an incredibly great day. Even my training demo went well. {I still don’t like doing them, and I still get tongue-tied out of nervousness, but they aren’t nearly as bad as they used to be.}

Tuesday through Wednesday were fairly quiet days. More gorgeous weather that meant dressing like it’s 30 degrees out wouldn’t work. I quickly realized that my closet is seriously lacking in clothes for warm weather, but I made do with what I had. I even figured I’d swap my usual boots out for a cute pair of flats to give my feet a break. Sadly my feet didn’t enjoy that too much and after two days of acquiring blisters, I swapped my flats out for some wedges. Apparently my feet prefer heels. I also managed to have a wonderful dinner with a really good friend on Wednesday.

Thursday I felt absolutely scatterbrained. So much so, I actually locked my keys in my office on my way to lunch. Thankfully there was a spare key upstairs, but I felt pretty silly. Since then, I’ve been mindful about where my keys are, at one point even clipping them to my belt loop. My coworker joked that his mother does the same thing to keep from losing things.

Friday was a bit rainy, but I actually enjoyed it. I wore my polka-dot rain boots into work and brought shoes to change into because it was raining so hard. I don’t know what it is about rain boots but they make my day. I feel like a little kid wanting to stomp in all the puddles around campus, but as a “professional” employee, I refrain.

I’ve been trying to stick to my “routine” as closely as possible this week. Making sure to work out each evening, spend time catching up on chores, etc. It’s a work in progress but I notice myself thinking “Okay, what should I be doing now?” more often rather than just doing nothing, and working out puts me in such a better mood.

I didn’t do so well in terms of not shopping this week. I purchased a new alarm clock so I’m not caught waking up an hour late when it decides to fall back an hour. Chase got some new Cat Dancer toys which are his favorite. I ordered some more Coletos from Jet Pens, makeup odds and ends from (I had coupons and cash back offers). I ordered a Leatherman Style CS (a pink limited edition one that’s no longer available) so that I could leave my other one at work. I also revamped my wardrobe with a bunch of clothes from Forever21, Alloy, and Charlotte Russe. Overall I spent entirely way too much, but not too much, that I can’t pay off the balance on my credit card entirely by next week, and I did need new clothes.

Here’s to another week! Thanks for reading!
